Riding a bike

Practicing before the training wheels come off

Relaxin while Dad works on his bike

For some reason we took forever to work with Hudsen to ride her bike. So we finally decided that it was time, since she made it her spring break goal. :) Ryan helped her and she did great. It took her a couple more nights to get it all on her own but she got it.. Its a little harder for her because her bike is taller and she cant reach the floor when sitting on her bike, but she is doing really well and we are so proud of her.

Packed a snack

I love this picture of my boys. Clarke just turned four and he looks like a baby here. I like it. He is growing up so fast, * So for a while we were commuting to Hudsen's school after we had moved, because we wanted to keep her there until spring break. About everyday before getting on there freeway we would see a homeless man with a sign, asking for food or money to help him. Every once in a while when we'd have food or spare change we could give, we would do so. So anyways one day, we were getting ready to leave the house to go pick up Hudsen from school and Clarke says to me, "Mom, I packed the Homeless man a snack. I know that he likes raisins." :) It was so precious. He melted my heart. He had thought about this man and grabbed him a packaged raisin danish all on his own. When we got to the spot. I thought It would be a good idea to have him give it to the man, since he thought of it. So I rolled down the window and the man walked up. Once he saw Clarke he had the biggest smile. Clarke gave him his snack and the man said, Thank you so much. God bless you son. Clarke just said, your welcome. :) It made me cry, That my little son had thought to do something so kind for a complete stranger who needed help. He is such an example to me. I will never forget that day.

Library Joy School Field Trip

All the little ladies and Clarke

Snack Time

Little Miss Allie

We went to the Library for a Joy School Field Trip. It was pretty cool. They got a tour, story time, hand outs and a craft to do. Hudsen got to come because she was on Spring Break.

Last day @ Mesquite Trails/ Bryan Clay/ Walk a thon

Principal Stewart (left) Bryan Clay (right)

This was Hudsen's last day of school at Mesquite Trails. I will really miss it. We both loved it!! They had great teachers/Staff and Hudsen had great friends. Mrs. Hoffman is seriously the greatest teacher ever. What she does with those kids is really amazing. I really admire her. It was a really fun day. Bryan Clay the reining Olympic decathlon Gold medalist came. Hudsen won an art contest for the whole kindergarten at her school and won a cool big art kit and got to shake Bryan Clays hand. She is the little one towards the right wearing a black sweater. I'm so mad, my camera wasn't charged so these are the only pictures I have of that day. It was a fun day, and so sad to say goodbye. One of Hudsen's friends (Tatiana) walked us to our car after school and cried. :( It was precious but sad. We look forward for the next Olympics to Cheer for Bryan Clay again!!
